Teach Too: Kirklees College: working with construction employers to develop occupational knowledge and teaching practice within new markets

Summary Teach Too is about encouraging people from industry to spend time teaching their work through curriculum development, promoting the practice of teachers and trainers updating their industry experience and helping to build genuine collaborative arrangements between employer and providers. The focus of this project was to further develop skills and knowledge of local employers in new techniques and to provide staff and students with the opportunity to extend their product knowledge. The College worked with new magnetic plasters that led to opportunities to learn how to apply the latest emerging technology with Venetian plaster for use in restaurants and offices.
